Ola, days seem to fly so fast for me and it's okay because being a Stay at home mom, pag laging nasa bahay lang, subrang tagal ng araw, but I thank God that I become a member of Open Rice Ph, Open Snap and I have a chance to explore different restaurants.
This week its our third Eat's A Date Resto review in Open Rice Philippines and Open Snap in Pilgrim restaurant in Maginhawa Sikatuna Village Quezon City.
From the name "Pilgrim" for me it sounds like an "extra-ordinary" and its interesting right? So I'm so excited to discover if what's inside this resto and their concept.
When we say "Pilgrim" the thing that comes to our mind is Elephant right? The owner of this resto loves to travel and he loves exploring other places. Mr. Dennis Tan the Chef of these resto said that he would love to bring the specialties of foreign foods here in Philippines instead of going finding them in their places and spending money just to try those, foods he decided to bring them in the Pilgrim with low and affordable prices.
Other Filipinos loves foreign foods, but for me I'm still loyal for the Filipino foods siguro nasanay lang talaga ako sa lutong Pinoy.
For those who are foreign food lovers there, I would love to recommend Pilgrim for you guys. I'm sure you will love and enjoy their foods.

WHAT CAN I SAY ABOUT THE PILGRIM RESTAURANT?
From the highway to the place of this resto it takes 15-20 mins rides, and the place its good medyo maliit lang ang space and mainit but its okay I understand because they are still developing the place and I salute of their creativity specially the interior designs. The lights are dim.
They are accommodating and kind, ang bait ni Chef Dennis at ang sipag. I can really say that they work as a team there and they work hard just to give a good service for the costumers.
Foods are good, and maybe I'm not satisfied because as I said di ako sanay sa mga foreign na foods specially if Korean foods, Taiwan foods and so forth. Sanay kasi ako sa Pilipino foods, nasa level of adjustment pa ako. hehe! But what I love about their menu is that you're like exploring or traveling in so many places kasi nag ooffer sila ng mga food na iba't iba. Or galing sa iba't ibang country. Kung naghahanap ka ng pagkain na pang indonesian sila ang magseserve sayo, sila na ang nagdala ng mga pagkain na gusto mo na di ka gagastos ng malaki, Ang galing di ba?
I would love to recommend this to others who want to dine here. Their price is makamasa at kayang-kaya sa bulsa.
They are also Open for events, Christmas parties, etc.
